Trip Planner: Europe / Greece / Crete / Rethymnon Prefecture / Rethymnon / Stagakis Cretan Lyra Workshop
Learn about traditional musical instruments at Stagakis Cretan Lyra Workshop, established in 1945. This family-run workshop makes high-quality lyras, favored by both amateur and professional musicians of local and international renown. Each instrument takes about a week to produce by hand, following the artist's specific requirements for tone and pitch. If you're looking for a personal, albeit rather expensive souvenir, consider purchasing a lyra, mandolin, bouzouki, or mandola. The store also sells disposable items, like strings and bows, as well as used musical instruments. Discover how to plan a Rethymnon trip in just a few steps with Inspirock's itinerary builder.
